The Indo-European Controversy: Facts and Fallacies in Historical Linguistics

By Asya Pereltsvaig and Martin W. Lewis

This book "asserts that the origin and spread of languages must be examined primarily through the time-tested techniques of linguistic analysis, rather than those of evolutionary biology" and "defends traditional practices in historical linguistics while remaining open to new techniques, including computational methods" and "will appeal to readers interested in world history and world geography."

Series Title: Cognitive Linguistics Research [CLR] 46
Description:

In line with the increasing use of empirical methods in Cognitive Linguistics, the
current volume explores the uses of quantitative, in particular corpus-driven,
techniques for the study of meaning. It shows how these techniques contribute
to the core theoretical issues of Cognitive Semantics as well as how they inform
semantic analysis. The research presented in the volume constitutes an
important step towards an Empirical Cognitive Semantics.
